    GRID 2 for PC is one of the best racing games around, thanks to an excellent AI and gorgeous graphics.

    Grid 2 is a racing game that rewards skill without punishing you for the tiniest mistakes, letting you master a simple system with a forgiving attitude. It may stray too close towards the easy side of the scale at times, and it'll be interesting to see how the game works online (which unfortunately wasn't tested in this review), but its career mode is well worth playing and you won't be satisfied until you've mastered every single corner.

    GRID 2 doesn’t insist on tuning, there is no setup hassle – just driving fun with a great sense of speed. Unfortunately some problems remain untouched, among them the very aggressive AI.

    A well-curated car list, a great sense of speed, and a well-thought out career mode combine in a racer that is a lot of fun to play through.

    The more time you spend with Grid 2, the more you feel like its caught in a conflict of personality. However, there are no problems here that can’t be fixed with a patch or two, and racing fans will find plenty to enjoy. Here’s to hoping that Codemasters will support the game post-release.

    Every situation in GRID 2 feels the same, and there is a reason. Having collected more than 50 cars in my virtual garage, I can’t point out my favorite ones – they all behave the same way, without any distinctive quirks of ‘character’. And locations that repeat ad nauseum only make this feeling worse.

The result is a game that simulator purists will surely frown upon.... (lack of view, no tuning) but everyone else will enjoy. The locations and cars look absolutely stunning. The single player is meaty and the multiplayer is absolutely worth playing. Expand

Awesome graphics, many different real cool cars, amazing trucks, interesting carier . This game much better than Need For Speed Rivals . This game nearly on a par with Project Cars . This game even much better than Race Driver Grid and I think Grid 2 much better than Dirt 3 and even Blur . Excellent physics and I think this game is amazing and included in my top 3 best racing videogames .

    I have just re-downloaded Grid 2 via Steam and after playing the game for a bit I find it's an enjoyable racer. It's not a full on simulationI have just re-downloaded Grid 2 via Steam and after playing the game for a bit I find it's an enjoyable racer. It's not a full on simulation type game but it's still a good game. The game shouldn't need a top of the range PC to run on but if you do have such a machine then you can set all the graphical options to their highest and the game looks good. Expand

    GRID 2 is both great fun at times, and awkward the rest of the time. The graphics look wonderful, especially on Ultra, everything looks smoothGRID 2 is both great fun at times, and awkward the rest of the time. The graphics look wonderful, especially on Ultra, everything looks smooth and polished. The problem is in the car handling. One minute I can take a corner and my tires will hold, and the next I'll hit a similar corner and my car will flip off the road into a wall, and not a lick of it makes sense. It's almost like some corners are designed for drifting while others won't allow it. The front wheel drive cars handle exactly the same as the rear wheel drive cars, and that just doesn't make sense at all.

    Another annoying feature is the commentary. If you're in 4th place, you'll hear "Try for 3rd." I mean, wow! I would have never thought of trying to advance in the pack so I could overtake 3rd! Thank you for the insight, dude!" It is utterly useless, and you can't get rid of it. So you get subjected to such gems as "some of your starts are getting a reputation as aggressive, and we don't want that." Really? We don't want to have a reputation for being aggressive? In a RACE? Who put that one in there?

    Ah well, so to boil it down to details:

    PRO:
    Beautiful graphics
    Nice selection of cars

    CONS:
    Blathering commentary
    Poor handling

    SUMMARY: If you can find the game for $10 or less, it's a fairly good deal, and you may end up enjoying the game. Any more than that, and you'll just feel like you wasted your money.

    Hey...there, Codemasters.

    This game is some hackers joke, right? There will be a legit release of this poppin up in a few days and ohhh we're all gonna have had an amazing laugh bout how you fooled us all with this...crap.

    Things I will love when Grid 2 finally will be released:

    1. Controls menu where I actually can change my controllers sensitivity settings and alike.

    2. 1st person/drivers POV.

    3. At least somewhat believable physics that don't require you to drift in order to drive fast.

    4. You're cool with 3D-modeling, now why not try and add some depth to your characters and the "story"?

    Big BIG letdown.
    3/10 purely for graphics.

    Начала очень громко орать, пошла заставка, которую никак нельзя пропустить, или поставить на паузу, чтобы сделать звук тише.

    Начала очень громко орать, пошла заставка, которую никак нельзя пропустить, или поставить на паузу, чтобы сделать звук тише.
    После окончания заставки был выбор: Синглплей или Онлайн.
    Думаю, ну выберу сингл и зайду в меню синглплеера и настройки.
    Нет же, началась еще одна заставка, которую нельзя пропустить.
    После заставки началась гонка.
    И только в гонке можно зайти в настройки и убрать звук.
